A Lone Bagpiper

All of us are coming out of the isolation spawned by Covid-19 into a world changed by virus and by riotous disruption.  In some ways, this is good.  In some ways this is bad.  In all ways, this is a world changed.

Inverness City 2020 - High Kirk Church - We Are In This Together

A Lone Bagpiper
by Michael Doyle

A lone bagpiper plays the French Square
He and the walker are only ones there
Things there are that must be taught
Among these is to tell the truth as we ought

When authorities lie, cheap rumors spread
With all sorts of notions playing in our heads
The beginning edge is the lack of transparency
This has led to much doubt while needing clarity

Simulations in the jump of rapid mutation
Leads to questions of genetic segmentations 
While Covid-19 has not been as deadly as 1918
It has its unique lethality for human beings

Without effective testing, it's a game of chance
To say what the odds are and what will enhance
Society's efforts toward reducing into eradication
Of the impact of this virus through immunization

So say the alleged leaders of our world and nations
But without a more and greater, sensible explanation
A good deal of the people will prefer herd immunity
This confused response seems destined to be our legacy
